I don't see the 950 mentioned anywhere...

Doesn't make much sense for Magura to develop a full Radial supermoto setup for the 950 either I think.

So how does it work?

Is that a custom mounting bracket or an off the shelf item. The setup looks great. How does it compare to the stock twin disc setup? and the stock single disc setup?

Bump...

I'm about on page 22 of reading through Orange Crush and this post is woefully in need of updating. The brake kit on Ricardo's bike is dope but since he's the only one who's done it we need some feedback here. How does it work? Has anyone else done this? What kit is used? the 640 or the 525? How is this single compared to stock?

Answers please!

I think Flanny and some others went single disk, just used the stock caliper, IIRC some want a bigger disk. Don't know if the setup is dope, but Flanny's a dope, for sure. I think the consensus is that one stock brake is great off-pavement and a little less than optimal on tar. You might try searching Flanny's posts, or maybe Greg Minor's -- you went single, didn't you Greg?

I'm still waiting on my 320mm rotor to show up.

One this is for sure. the 950 caliper is slightly different than the 640 Adv Caliper. (The holes for mounting to the float pins are closer together). I learned this the hard way by ordering the 320mm caliper mount for the supermotard, and the 950 caliper does not fit on it.

So...The plan right now is to steal the caliper off my 525, and put it on the 950 with the 320mm mount, and put the 950 caliper and mount on my 525...

We'll see how it goes!

Jimmy Lewis and Scott Hardin use single disk

In Jimmy's final hurrah from Cycle World, his article mentioned that they changed to a single front brake. I'm sure he mentioned what he did, and it did not sound complicated at all. And, I'm pretty sure that Scott Hardin's bike had a single disk on it too (in McCall at the Adventure Rally). If I remember correctly, they used simple KTM available parts.

If the 950 came stock with a single front caliper, there'd be a huge aftermarket for a twin disk conversion kit

For those that have gone single up front, how does the single disk feel with a loaded down bike or a passenger onboard?

The single 300mm is great off-road, but inadequate on the street, and in particular when the bike is loaded. That is why I'm looking to even out the overall compromise with a 320mm disk.

I also think that getting the 4 piston caliper would alse very likely bring to bike back to similar braking power as with the twin disks, so I'm opting to go with the two piston caliper and 320mm disk as the "middle-ground" compromise.

IMHO the single disk mod is really only a good idea if you ride enough off-road to get annoyed with the front end locking into turns and stuff. If you don't have a problem with the grabbiness to begin with, then you'll definitely not be impressed with the remaining braking ability on the road.

Cheers Flanny, be interesting to see how things work out.

Another 950 rider (who was thinking of making the single disk switch) and I rode to Big Bend a few months back. I think riding the loaded down bike on the highway gave him food for thought. Tucking the front at 50 on the dirt is one thing, having a deer run out in front of you at 120 is another
